On my 1998 SLK230 I notice a broken vacuum line on my supercharger because it was running a little rough. It seems impossible to find a supercharger vacuum diagram. does anyone know of one?

Through the link provided to me from Pelican's website, "supercharger removal", I may have my existing lines crossed but I'm not sure. Pelican's picture is a little blurry.

Im trying to verify that my air lines are routed correctly (yellow and red)
There is a second nipple on the top of the supercharger....I have NO idea where it goes.....

These darn air lines get VERY BRITTLE after 16 years......

Welcome to SLKWorld.com: The #1 Mercedes-Benz SLK Forum from Valrico, Florida!



Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hi and Welcome from Houston, TX!
Until someone takes a picture of their pre-facelift to show you how these lines look like, the diagram from EPC won't help you that much. It looks like an engineering drawing and is good only for getting part numbers.

Bummer, too bad no one on this forum has a 98-04 R170 Mercedes Benz.

Oh they have but they might be a driver and not be mechanically inclined.

Educated guess, my vacuum line comes off the S/C housing and goes to the short big tube that connects my airbox to the top of the engine, probably emissions vent tube. the fat short hoses has a small y on it to hook up your vac line.
